Managing Pain Without Painkillers
Defining your pain
Before starting any routine to manage pain, it is important to get an accurate assessment from a medical professional. When it comes to spinal problems and structural issues in the body, a comprehensive assessment at your chiropractor’s office is a good way to get a grip on what is causing your pain. Is it related to the recovery and rehab from a traumatic injury? Or is it part of a longer cycle of chronic pain that is only now rising to the surface? Is the problem structural and easily addressed; or is it non-specific and hard to pinpoint? Pain is a fickle creature- it needs constant management. One of the best things you can start doing, and one of the most useful for your doctor, is to keep a journal of your pain. This gives us key insights into the nature of your pain.
Beating pain the natural way
Our goal is to help everyone, regardless of their pain profile, to keep pain management as natural as possible; and yes, that means as free of painkillers as possible. So often painkillers take people down roads they simply don’t want to go down, tying them down with side-effects and addictive properties that create as many problems as they solve.
We see wellness from a more holistic perspective
Rather than going down this road, we want to help our patients, indeed our community, to address pain in a more natural manner. That means identifying and correcting the underlying issue; using regular chiropractic adjustments to maintain spinal balance and regulate the nervous system; implementing good diet and exercise to improve immunity and keep the body unhindered from the many traumas of daily life.
If you are suffering from chronic pain, please don’t hesitate for another day. Give our office a call so we can start getting to the bottom of your pain- you will be amazed at the progress we can make in a single appointment.
